The Marios beef dish is one of the most memorable, most delicious dishes I have ever had!
Fabulous food, beautiful inside!!
Prices are a bit expensive, but the service is good. The crew really take care of their customers... (Sometimes so much)
You'll have the time of your life at Mario's busy, happy Cuban/Spanish restaurant, but don't fool around: Make a reservation.
The food is a combination of Cuban & Spanish favorites, like roasted pork with caramelized plantains - http://flmag.com/restaurant-guide/mario%E2%80%99s-catalina-restaurant#sthash.e9uyflir.dpuf
Watch out! The food is mediocre, and very expensive for Cuban. The owner also tried a "bait and switch" on me, charging me $150 gift certificates that I didn't ask for. Total scam.
best plantains and sangria!! an awesome find in ft lauderdale
Everything is delicious.
Absolutely fantastic. Went for Christmas Eve as we are in town for a cruise. Mario and his staff took care of us very well. Great food, sangria, and mojitos.
Mario is the best!
Mario is awesome great service unreal food
Sangria is off the hook.
This place blew ass. The services was horrible and the owner was an asshole.
A Cuban gem in Ft Lauderdale. The salmon and shrimp in red sauce was fantastic. Service, music and ambience were perfection. Try a bottle of Argentinian Malbec red wine.
Great place for authentic Cuban food!
Food was amazing. Waiters were all great and we will be going again!
The food is delicious and service is awesome, Leslie is a great server!
The half appetizer is great for 2-3 people :-)
Try the Catalina Combination. You get to sample all of Mario's traditional Cuban dishes.
Great place!!! Excellent food!!! Friendly staff!!! I want to come back ...
Absolutely wonderful! Empanadas were great start! Good food, excellent service. Oh Tres Leche...Even met Mario!
Mario's favorite FTW
You must absolutely meet Mario!! His persona is what makes dining here extraordinary.
Rip off customer then gives a gift certificate, never will go back, food was nothing special, avoid this place
Amazing food! No Cuban sandwiches today. This is fine dining :) Johnny was the best waiter! The flan is astonishing. Cuban coffee is excellent. Ham croquettes & empanadas delicious :)
A pitcher of Sangria is a must!
Ask to see the desert menu. Even if you don't order anything, you won't regret it.
Beautiful place and friendly service!
Wonderful service with superb food.
Wow! This place is amazing. Mario took the menus away from us and said he'll cook us something good. He shocked us with the greatness of what this restaurant has to offer. Great job!
The meat empanadas are incredible!
Get the oysters. Best I've ever had
Mario is the man. Really good Cuban food.
A great experience for your first Cuban experience. Great food and great service!
food was delicious and service was even better
I never really ate Cuban before but now I am a fan!!
The food is amazing!!!! I ordered a tamale con lechon and it melts in your mouth! Mojito is awesome too!
Great food, great wine selection and amazing desserts! 10 points on service. A must from now on
Wonderful place fit a romantic and fabulous dinner. Recommend the frozen sangria and quattro letche cake. Fabulous ap platter. Five stars!
Absolutely, hands down, super amazing Cuban food. Do not even think twice about it...you simply must come. Have the Catalina platter for starters.
